Yubuchobap

I am loving yubuchobap these days.  If you haven't heard of these little Korean pockets of deliciousness, you need to remedy that situation stat.  They are seasoned tofu pockets stuffed with rice.  The seasoned tofu pockets, as well as the mix-ins for the rice come in this package:


The only other thing you need to do is make some sticky rice (I used a mixture of sticky rice and black rice).  After making the rice you dump in some vinegar stuff and a packet of seeds, and then fill the pockets.


One package has enough stuff for 3 batches (the picture above is one batch).


Deeeeelish!

That has been the extent of my cooking in May, and I wouldn't call it cooking!  Other than that I have stopped at Robin's a few times:

 

I ate a sandwich at a local restaurant, Rock Creek.

 

And a scrumptious plate of food at Afghan Kabob & Donair in Saskatoon this weekend.  This place I will return to.  Very soon.


I ate it allllll up.  Afghani food makes Jolene a very happy girl.

A bubble tea next door made for a great finish to the best meal I have had in a month. 


I had a great weekend.  When is the next one? 

How was your weekend?  Have you ever had yubuchobap?  If not, get your butt to the local Korean market and doooo it up!  Do you like bubble tea?  What kind do you order?

Why am I here??? said...

Yah, for Korean food. Now you just need a side of kimchi. Seriously, I'll spare some of mine if you need. I always get them from the ajumas in the city. I miss reading your posts.....please post more often ;) keke

Kimchi is my favourite food! Also, I totally need to post more often. I need to get back into the groooooove. That is my goal for this week.

You guys seem to have a lot of yummy ethnic places around you hey? I've never tried or even heard of these little pockets of deliciousness. Do you know, are they anything like inari?

Jolene - EverydayFoodie said...

Yeah, I think they are like inari! The Korean version :-)

Not sure if your Rock Creek is the same as ours but it is totally average. Agreed.

I have never even heard of yubuchobap... which doesn't surprise me because I don't eat a lot of Korean food (or any at all, really). Sounds delicious!

I've never had bubble tea, either!

My weekend was good. I studied alot, but rewarded myself with a lunch at this local raw food restaurant, which is SO good!

The yubuchobap looks good! You're totally opening up my eyes to unique foods/foodie ideas. Also, I thought of you the other day when I read an article on umami! =)
